The Walker Files: The Epitomy of the Complete Player
By Tracy Ringolsby
What sets Larry Walker apart from others is the completeness of his game. He could hit for average, hit for power, run the bases, and field. If you look for players who hit .300, had an on-base percentage of .400 and a slugging percentage of .500 along with 450 doubles, 60 triples, 350 home runs and 1,250 RBI, Walker is one of seven players who would surface. Add 150 stolen bases and he is in a class all his own. Oh, and don’t forget he won seven Gold Gloves.
